Raytheon has signed a cooperative agreement with PASSUR Aerospace to jointly develop analytics-based tools for airline, airport and control tower operators to manage air traffic data.
The alliance seeks to combine Raytheon’s ATM systems and PASSUR’s decision support software that is built with business intelligence and predictive analytics technology, Raytheon said Monday.
“We are using analytics to create useful information and get it to the air traffic managers and operators who make crucial decisions regarding air traffic flow at all stages of flight,” said Jim McCoy, vice president of Raytheon’s air traffic systems business.
“Rapid access to better information enhances safety, efficiency and the curb-to-curb travel experience,” McCoy added.
Raytheon and PASSUR’s integrated platform will be designed to support the Federal Aviation Administration‘s next-generation flight data manager initiative, according to the article.
The companies are scheduled to present their collaborative work at the Communicating for Safety conference later this month.
